Something my Daddy taught me...

lyrics

Scars & Stripes


Had a bad case of the wandering eye
Soft lips smooth hands the only things on my mind
I’m waiting in the wings for a cue, searching for you to give my eye to
But these tinted glasses always taint my view

My daddy warned me about your kind
He said you’d never change your ways
You’re just that tiger he spoke of
With the same stripes on a different day

Set my gaze down upon your sweet skin
Then torture myself with the thought of your secret grin
It’s your face that first took me by surprise
But I know I’ll see the truth when I look into your eyes
Let them show me something new, not just the same bullshit I’m used to

Cause my daddy warned me about your kind
He said you’d never change your ways
You’re just that tiger he spoke of
With the same stripes on a different day

Don’t be just the one I’m eyeing, in my rearview mirror
Come here, even closer, than you appear
And I’ll wave my flag of scars and stripes
It’s black, not white, I’m not the surrender type
I won’t leave you here without a fight
What you see is what you get my stripes will never change
But the scars will show forever, and I know, you too, the same.

Cause my daddy warned me about your kind
He said you’d never change your ways
You’re just that tiger he spoke of
With the same stripes on a different day

My daddy warned me about your kind
He said you’d never change your ways
You’re just that tiger he spoke of
With the same stripes on a different day

Erona Los Angeles, California

Music has never been a stranger to Erona. It began as a choir solo with 300 back up singers at age of 10 and she has not stopped since. Though influenced by artists like Billie Holiday, Janis Ian, Jeff Buckley, and Paula Cole, music, to her, was no longer about telling someone else's story, but rather living her own. A soulful song or a deep blues groove allow her to share her stories this far. ... more
